We recently reported about the possibility of WWE finding Paul Heyman someone else to work with in addition to him returning when Brock Lesnar comes back. Heyman is upset because he doesn’t have a downside guarantee and only gets paid per appearance. He has been used so rarely that he’s threatened to not re-sign when his contract comes up if they can’t find more for him to do.
One source indicated Heyman has pitched coming in as the mastermind behind AJ Styles turning on John Cena and being the mouthpiece for Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Vince McMahon has joked that he finds Paul more tolerable in small doses and while there has been some preliminary effort to come up with ideas that could be paired with Paul, Vince wasn’t high on the idea of putting him with The Club.
